While it took a little bit for Kmet to become an integral part of the offense in Chicago, he stood out towards the end of last season and actually became a weekly contributor for your fantasy lineups. With Jimmy Graham still on this roster, it's hard to find the path for targets that would allow Kmet to crack the top-12 at the position, but he showed enough last year to at least warrant fantasy football consideration. Even if Graham is still a Chicago Bear for Week 1, Kmet should have enough involvement to at least be considered as a streaming candidate. However, if the Bears move on from Graham and his salary cap hit, Kmet's ADP would go skyrocketing. We could be talking about a top-10 TE at that point. My Very Early Projection: 55-566-5 receiving.

Cole Kmet hauls in three receptions in final game of rookie campaign

Cole Kmet saw four targets and had three receptions for 16 yards in Sunday's playoff loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Prior to Week 9, Kmet didn't take more than 47% of his team's snaps. From Week 11 through Week 17, Kmet played at least 78% and he supplanted Jimmy Graham as the team's number one tight end. Drafted as the first tight end off the board in 2020, Kmet will go into his sophomore season with high hopes, especially if the Bears choose to end Jimmy Graham's contract. With an expected quarterback change in Chicago as well, Kmet could make for a sneaky sleeper in 2021 fantasy leagues.
